    The three selective processes that we use to gather and interpret information are exposure, perception, and retention. Selective exposure is seeing only what you want to see. Perception is hearing only what you want to hear. Retention is remembering only what you want to remember. Exposure is like when you are reading a magazine an overlook things that do not interest you. Perception is when a person hears a commercial that comes on the radio or television that doesn't interest them so they turn channels, mute, or even ignore whatever in on. Retention is when a person hears or sees something, but since it doesn't interest them they do not remember it or it doesn't register with them.

    Selective exposure: we notice what interests us. If an ad or a commercial doesn't catch our eye we won't pay attention to it, therefore not buying the product. Selective perception: if what they are advertising conflicts with what we believe in, we block that out and won't look into the products being advertised. Selective retention: If what we see is not worth remembering to us, we won't remember the product being offered. Therefore, if the product is not catchy, we won't remember it well enough to buy it.

    Selective exposure- our eyes and minds seek out and notice only information that interests us. Selective perception-we screen out or modify ideas, messages, and information that conflict with previously learned attitudes and beliefs. Selective retention-we remember only what we want to remember. An example is Smith Tires advertising a sale in the newspaper weekly. Most of the time we don't even notice these ads. Only when we need new tires do we tune into Smith's ad.

    The three selective processes are Selective exposure, Selective perception, and Selective retention. An example of Selective exposure would be a pop up ad on a website. Modifying ideas, messages, and information would be an example of selective perception. A good example of selective retention would be remembering what soda you bought yesterday, or remembering the food at a resturaunt was bad.

    People gather and interpret information from constant stimuli. The selective processes we apply are selective exposure, selective perception, and selective retention. Our selective processes are affected by our current needs and those are the ones we focus on. We seek out and notice only information that interests us, or we use selective exposure. When reading a magazine, if we are trying to lose weight for that upcoming wedding, we may skip to the “she lost 50 pounds in 4 weeks, find out how she did it” article. We may never notice the many perfume, cosmetic, or clothing ads. We also “read into” or ignore messages that conflict with our preconceived ideas or beliefs, which is selective perception. If we believe that Americans are sue happy, then when we see a commercial for a local attorney, we may “read into” the message that they are ambulance chasing and are not trust worthy. Selective retention is how we are able to remember some things and not others, even though we have been exposed to it over and over again. For example, you can remember every word to your favorite song but may not be able to remember even the name of a song that you hear on the radio every day.

    The three selective processes that we use to gather and interpret information are selective exposure, selective perception, selective retention. Selective Exposure is when we only see information that we interst in. Selective Perception is when we twist information to fit or situation. Selective retention is when we gather only information that we want and retain it.

    The three selective processes are selective exposure, selective perception and selective retention, Examples: selective exposure - we may see an ad for an oil change every week, but we pay no attention until we need this service selective perception - if you believe artificial sweeteners are unhealthy, you will screen out products that contain Splenda selective retention - I would probably not remember an advertisement for denture products because I do not have dentures
